always been a fan of maria bamfords off kilter comedy. she has a new netflix show called lady dynamite that is.... wait for it.... getting good buzz.
watched the first one. definitely unusual. 4th wall breaks with meta-analysis on comedy tropes, surreal elements with animals replacing humans, flashbacks within flashbacks. its produced by the creator of arrested development which is a good sign. might end up being too self aware for its own good but will get a fair amount of praise from the comedy geek community.
arrested development was genius. you are your own worst enemy.
i have never seen miranda nor had i heard of it til now but i did think that actress was good in spy.
watched about two minutes of it. that is a reasonable comparison but its like comparing my cooking to jims. i promise you jims is better even if he calls 'boil in a bag' 'sous vide.' i know its not boiling. shut up. the shite laugh track is enough to make me turn it off.
kidding. not kidding.
yeah that laugh track and so many other low budgie brit-com production pitfalls, including relentless pratfalls. but it seems they were all there on purpose. must have been a hard creative decision to stick to. i understand arrested development is well thought of. still i never look forward to it other than to kill time. No, Liza Maneli is her own worst enemy! btw, i binge watched W Arnett in Flaked. 1 season only story arc, set in venice ca. with a bunch of AA bo-hos co-starring gentrification. just ok but not too bad. i was recovering from an operation.
I've seen about 5 episodes. I think she's great and it's funny but at times so wacky I don't think I get it. Makes me feel old.
